Conclusions Unfortunately, acinetobacter meningitis is becoming an increasingly common clinical entity. High dose of intrathecal netilmicin in the treatment of nosocomial Acinetobacter baumannii meningitis.

Treatment of nosocomial meningitis due to a multidrug resistant Acinetobacter baumannii with intraventricular colistin. These results should be viewed as a conservative estimate, since these patients only had minimal inflammation of the meninges. Clearly, administration of antibiotics should continue until CSF cultures are negative. IDSA guidelines for management of bacterial meningitis reserve ciprofloxacin for patients who have not responded to, or cannot receive, alternate antimicrobial therapy.

Risk factors associated with postcraniotomy meningitis.

Cases of pseudomeningitis with acinetobacter ie, CSF is culture positive for acinetobacter in the absence of dosd and laboratory features of meningitis have been well described. Adjunctive treatment with corticosteroids At present, dexamethasone is neither recommended as a specific adjunct to antibiotic treatment of meningitis due to Gram-negative bacilli with the exception of Haemophilus influenzae type B nor for neonatal meningitis.


Similar to ceftazidime, Lodise and colleagues 96 characterised the pharmacodynamic profile of the IDSA recommended cefepime dose for bacterial meningitis 2 g cefepime every 8 h. Pharmacodynamics of intravenous ciprofloxacin in seriously ill patients. If continued use of the device is required, such as the need for intracranial pressure measurement, another device should be placed at a new location. However, MICs for gentamicin in susceptible strains of Acinetobacter spp are typically 0.

Adult acinetobacter meningitis and its comparison with non-acinetobacter gram-negative bacterial meningitis. Postsurgical meningitis caused by Acinetobacter baumannii associated with high mortality. Hanninen P, Rossi T. Data are ranged by antibiotics. Meningitis Search for additional papers on this topic. Pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of antibiotics in otitis media.

Pneumonia Adverse reaction to drug gram Pathogenic organism. Diagn Microbiol Infect Dis. Mixed infection in amikacjn bacterial meningitis. The epidemiology of this infection is reviewed, and management of this infection is discussed in detail. Unfortunately, limited development of new antibiotics plus the growing threat of multidrug-resistant acinetobacter is likely to increase the problems posed by acinetobacter meningitis in the future.

Six of the seven patients on the 6-hourly schedule were cured, while the patient on the 8-hourly schedule died. However, cases intraventricluar true infection that have no CSF white blood cells have been reported. Efficacy and safety of doripenem vs. Pharmacologic study of 21 patients.

Fluoroquinolones may sometimes be active against Acinetobacter spp, with levofloxacin tending to have lower MICs than ciprofloxacin.

Table 3 Recommendations for antimicrobial therapy of patients with acinetobacter meningitis, by clinical setting. Lewin Current opinion in neurology Treatment Cefepime and ceftazidime Current recommendations from the Infectious Diseases Society of America IDSA regarding empirical antimicrobial therapy for postneurosurgical meningitis, are for intravenous vancomycin plus either cefepime, ceftazidime, or meropenem.


CSF penetration amiiacin sulbactam is variable and depends on the presence intraventrichlar meningeal inflammation. A specific hazard in neurosurgical patients. Nau R, Eiffert H. A report of 3 cases. The pharmacokinetic parameter that best correlates with a positive filerype for serious infections when gentamicin is administered intravenously, is the ratio of peak serum concentration C max to MIC optimally the ratio should be greater than ten. Treatment of a meningitis due to an Enterobacter aerogenes producing a derepressed cephalosporinase and a Klebsiella pneumoniae producing an extended-spectrum beta-lactamase.

Eight patients have been described who were treated with intravenous colistin methanesulphonate as intraventriculzr sole therapeutic agent, 183032where all except one of the patients were cured.

Safety profile of meropenem: Carbapenems Both imipenem and meropenem have been used in the treatment of acinetobacter meningitis. Treatment of ventriculitis with gentamicin and cloxacillin in infants born with spina bifida.

Antibiotic pharmacodynamics in cerebrospinal fluid. The penetration of the polymyxins in the CSF has not been well studied. Gram-negative bacillary meningitis therapy.
